Default Isonic 110 or 117

I would like an opinion with respect to which of these two boards (Is 110 or Is117) would suite my purposes. I weigh approximately 82 kilos and have been sailing for 30 years. I presently own a 2010 Is 131 and a 2011 Is 107.

I am looking for a board that gybes easier than the Is 131 and can also be used in light to moderate winds with either an 8.6 meter or 9.1 meter sail. Obviously I want something that is fast, planes quickly and gybes well -- everything my Is 107 does (which I will keep). I am not sure if an Is 110 really offers any significant advantages over the 107 to justify having both. Perhaps the 117 does. I seldom use an 8.6 meter sail with my 107.

Is the 117 competitive in a straight line with the 131 (now 127), through the lulls and is it easier to gybe. Yes, I can do full planning gybes on the 131 but it is less often and more difficult (quite a bit) than gybing the the 107.

Thanks,
Grant

Hi Grant,

In this case I recommend the 117 if you want to use the 9.5 and keep your 107. I use and PWA racers use with a lot of success the Reflex 9.2 like Steve Allen. You can use on this 117 7.8, 8.6 & 9.5.
If you don't plan to use the 9.5 then 110 will be enough but very close to 107, 107 will be better in very choppy condition with 7.8 and 110 better in flat water to moderate chop due to the different width and with 8.6 the 110 will be better all the time.

Hope this help

All the best
